It is shown that layer-by-layer measurements of the electron-transfer activation energy in polycrystalline ferrites allow the profiles of depth distribution of oxygen introduced from the atmosphere into a ferrite at the stage of sintering or thermal treatment to be studied using a simple experimental technique. The analytical equations proposed here make it possible to determine the volume and grain-boundary diffusion coefficients of oxygen using a minimum number of adjustable parameters.
